I’m shocked that nobody seems to care about this. “Keyword not defined” is now the new rule for google. It seems only searches from mobiles still return keywords in url, hence keywords useful for Piwik. Searches from computer return an url with coded parameters.
Are the personal of Piwik interested to decode those urls? Are advanced users, programmers, interested in decoding google’s urls? Otherwise, there will be a bitter end of all other web analytics, except Google Analytics.
… Not sending keywords is something the browsers do, and therefore just a result of Google using SSL…[/quote]
This is not quite exact. Please look in the source of google pages, when returns results for a keyword search and you’ll see that the information about keyword is not specified as the old pages did, I mean clear, plain text, now is encoded. Google needs to know for his metrics which link from result page was clicked by the user and for which keyword and this is transmitted to google by url, only now is encoded and the single thing intelligible there is the url of the site.
…“It seems only searches from mobiles still return keywords in url,”
Where did you get that information? I just tried it, and there are no keywords being sent from my mobile.[/quote]
From Piwik. I have numerous sites that reports keywords coming form mobile platforms. There are the only keywords I can see in Piwik now.
In this url you can see piwik.org very clear, but the rest is encoded. The keyword “piwik” is hidden in this long string. In this string is encoded the position of the site, in this case first, and the keyword, in this case “piwik”. Are you eager to decode this? I’m asking if addressing this problem is on your to do list. I’m asking if you are planning to resolve this problem.
